Pedal Power!

Today we had a wonderful time, making smoothies with Tim from Sustrans. He has visited us before to talk about the benefits of cycling, especially to and from school. Today, however, he brought a particularly exciting bike with him!

Tim asked each group to follow a recipe of 3 bananas, 4 strawberries, 2 spoonfuls of blueberries and some apple juice for the smoothie. We each took a turn to add the ingredients for our smoothies to a blender jug, which was then attached to the back of Tim's smoothie bike. Each child in the class then had a turn at pedalling on the special bike, to power the blender. We used pedal power to make our own smoothies and everyone agreed that they were delicious!

A Disease Strikes!

Yesterday with Mrs Herrera, St. George's Class had a very important mission! The school had been infected by a mysterious disease and it was up to St. George's Class to save them all! They had to use their knowledge of states of matter to decide how the disease might be spreading and what they could do to stop it. There were lots of interesting solutions and some terrifying ideas for the symptoms the disease might present with!

Take a look at the work the scientists completed inside the quarantine zone:

Cesar's Fantastic Titanic Pictures!

Take a look at this wonderful piece of work by Cesar! He drew a Titanic story at home, which shows what happened to the Titanic step-by-step.

We were all so impressed by his hard work- we could see that he spent a lot of time on this at home. Mrs Day thought it was wonderful too! Very well done, Cesar!

Our Class Poem: Shock

This week, we have read lots more of Kaspar Prince of Cats. There was a big twist in the story and the main character, Johnny, received some terrible news.

We used this as inspiration to write a poem together, using our ladder technique. We worked together to suggest lines for the poem, then we sorted them into an order we liked, before dividing them into verses and editing the punctuation.

Here is our completed poem:

What's wrong?
Could it be true?
Shock hits me like lightning,
Falling off a cliff,
A thought as deep as the sea.

Heart pounding,
Jaw dropping,
Stomach churning,
Throat burning,
Brain bursting.

My blood freezes,
Unstoppable pain,
Attacks me like a tiger.

Surrounded by darkness.

By St. George's Class

It's a fantastic poem, with lots of great examples of types of poetic language. Can you spot a metaphor? Can you see a simile? How about some alliteration?

Well done!


Congratulations St. George's Class on a fantastic assembly! You all performed brilliantly yesterday and we were very proud of you! We had lots of lovely comments from children, visitors and the other teachers; they all thought it was an excellent assembly and they were very impressed by your acting talents. Well done!

Thank you to all of the parents and carers who came to support the children. We hope you enjoyed it!

Fantastic teamwork, St. George's Class!

Good Friday

 Source: holycrossnyc

Today is Good Friday.

Today we remember the day that Jesus was crucified. It is a sad and serious day when we do not have special treats; some families might fast or avoid meat and the church will have no flowers and the statues might be covered. Today we observe the Stations of the Cross and we will hear the story of the Passion.
